Don't ask how to over-clock.

Hi everybody,
I am new to the forum and really hope to solve my problem here.
I own a old laptop and I've just changed it's processor from an Celeron M410@1.46 Ghz to a Intel Pentium Dual Core T2060@1.6 Ghz. My problem is that the CPU is not properly recognized, it is assigned as a Celeron by the Bios and runs at 800 Mhz (6x 133bus). In windows it is seen as 2 processors by device manager but it has only one working in task manager, and yes I have checked the view graph by CPU but to no avail. I would really like some help on making the Bios recognize my new processor.
Details:
Manufacturer: Packard Bell
Model: EasyNote MV 35
Bios: Insyde Software Corp. V1.07 , it can be found here--> ftp://ftp.download.packardbell.com/NOTEBOOK/EasyNote%20MV35%20series/Bios/.
Potential Donor: from MV46 here-->ftp://ftp.download.packardbell.com/NOTEBOOK/EasyNote%20MV46%20series/Bios/ or from MZ35 here--> ftp://ftp.download.packardbell.com/NOTEBOOK/EasyNote%20MZ35%20series/Bios/.

I have tried playing with uniextract to see the files in the bios(as it is an *.exe file) but I'm no expert so that I can swap the CPU code and make it work.
It is very important for my research to have both cores working, and I will be grateful if somebody can help me.

PS: I've managed to change the mulltiplier in windows from 6x to 12x so the processor runs @ 1.6 Ghz stable but only in Win 7 (in Win Xp Sp3 it does not boot).
